Video Transcript for Review of etrailer Hitch Pins and Clips - for 2 Inch and 2.5 Inch Hitches - e45TR

Hi there. I'm Michael with Today, we're gonna take a quick look at our trailer hitch receiver pin and clip. This is a durable 5/8 inch diameter carbon steel hitch pin that will secure your ball mount or hitch mounted accessory to your two inch or 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver. This does include the retaining clip here, so we can slide that in place to make sure that the pin is going to stay where we want it to be and it's not gonna wiggle its way out. Our usable length from where that clip is going to install to about where it's going to start bending up here is going to be 3 1/2 inches, which should accommodate all the two and 2 1/2 inch hitch receivers out there, but you do wanna make sure that your outer diameter of your hitch is going to allow for that clip to be put through there.

This does have a nice, black e-coat finish to it, both the pin and the clip. So, that's gonna help resist corrosion, help it to last a nice, long time. And it does have that durable carbon steel as I mentioned before, so it is going to be very sturdy for you. Comes with a lifetime limited warranty, so if you we're to have any problems, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at We're always happy to work with our customers, make sure you're getting a product that you're satisfied with and works well for you.

So, if you are wanting to have a hitch pin for your two inch or 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver, this is gonna be exactly what you need. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Thanks for watching.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (176 Customer Reviews)

Use this durable hitch pin to secure your ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory to your 2" or 2-1/2" hitch receiver. Includes retaining clip. Usable length is 3-1/2". Black e-coat resists corrosion.


Seems to be well made. Like the plating or coating.


I had a back ordered item that eventually came along with some other items I ordered at the same time. I’m not good about waiting but the wait was worth it as the entire order came a couple days ago and I immediately started using the items. Thanks for getting it right.



Much easier to use than the standard ones. No more knuckle bruises.


Perfect for what is needed. Great customer service!


Works great.


Works good


Good products



Excellent product. Heavy duty and the adjustable holes work with all kinds of trailer set-ups.


Very prompt service and communication! Keep it up!


Appears to be of high quality. I love how thick thw cotter pin is and how strong the product is. It appears both pieces will hold up well over time. lt is much better quality and much better built than even the one that came with my trailer hitch. I am very happy I decided to purchase this.


These hitch pins, like everything else I've bought at etrailer, is well made and sturdy. But what I believe is most commendable about the company is their superb customer service. You can get good products and fair prices from online retailers, but it is their attention to the customer's needs that sets them apart.


Nice accessory to go with the new hitch I purchased from etrailer. The black Ecoating is awesome, not found on other similar pins.


Fit like a glove.


Easy to install!


Round black pin and keeper. Fits into the ball mount and came in the nice brown box that ball mount came in. Thanks etrailer


Good hitch pin/clip. Does what it is supposed to do.


Hitch Pin, not much more. Hoping the black finish will look nice after use.


Excellent quality and excellent customer service!


Piece of junk, black paint scrapes off immediately, cheap look and feel


etrailer never disappoints. They always have what I need in stock and ships quickly.


Product fine.. slow shipping


Follow directions. It is an easy install. Just takes time.


I called in to make sure that I got correct every thing that I needed. Rodney was great and package arrive within 3 days


Easy website to maneuver, prompted shipment, and excellent product! Thanks!


The pins are great.


OK, not the one I looked at


Exactly as described

  • University of Tennessee Hitch Cover For 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    Yes, there is a University of Tennessee hitch cover that fits your 2 inch trailer hitch, and will accommodate the hitch pin hole that is 1-1/2 inches from the hitch opening. What you are looking for is the following: - Tennessee Chrome Logo Emblem 2" Hitch Cover # AMG100543 The hitch pin hole is 2 inches from the very back of the cover to the center of the hitch pin hole so the back won't be completely flush against the face of your hitch. To secure it to your hitch you will need Pin...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin And Clip For A 2"x2" Trailer Hitch On A 2022 Hyundai Palisade
    For your 2021 Subaru Ascent, with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e35ZR, I recommend using the Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock for etrailer Cargo Carriers # e99047. This is a locking hitch pin that can be keyed alike to match other etrailer branded locks, so you don't have to carry around a bunch of keys. A locking hitch pin is a much better option than a traditional pin and clip that increases security and theft prevention, however if you still wanted a traditional pin and...

  • Does Curt Winch Mount Plate Fit Curt Front Hitch For 2014 Honda Ridgeline
    Yes, the Curt winch mount plate does fit the Curt front mounted hitch for your 2014 Honda Ridgeline so you can use the two parts together, which are the following: - Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 33328 - Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010 As for the plastic on your Ridgeline it does need to be temporarily removed, yes. The only other thing I wanted to add is that in order to mount the winch plate in the hitch you'll just need the Hitch Pin and Clip # e45TR.

  • How To Adapt a Schwinn Bike Rack with a 1-1/4" Shank to a 2" Hitch Receiver
    It sounds like you have a 2" hitch and your Schwinn bike rack has a 1-1/4" shank. While the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 may work, it was designed for Saris bike racks that use a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter sleeve and would not have been tested with a Schwinn bike rack. I recommend that you use the Trailer Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # e63YR which will reduce your hitch to 1-1/4" instead of adapting the shank on your Schwinn bike rack to the hitch....

    There are two main pieces, the L shaped piece and the T shaped piece. Both ends of the L fit into the T so that the cross bar can be positioned behind the truck or up higher level with the cab. The pins that hold the extender together are included, but you will need a hitch pin and clip like part # e45TR.

  • Hitch Adapter With Rise for Kuat Pivot
    If you're having clearance issues with the Kuat Pivot PV20B your best bet is to use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers # D210. This will give you about 4 extra inches of height from your current receiver and the receiver has a 350 lb tongue weight whereas most adapters will reduce the tongue weight of your hitch by 50 percent. You will need pin and clip # PC3 to keep the mount in your receiver.

  • Sway Control For Hitch Not Rated For Use With Weight Distribution
    Good question, and the hitch on your Audi is not rated for use with weight distribution, so what I recommend instead is a friction sway control set up. This will provide you with better control over your trailer to give you a much more controlled, steady, and comfortable towing experience. The way it works is the ball plate from the kit attaches to your trailer frame, and the other end attaches to a tab on a ball mount, like in the accompanying photo. Just keep in mind this will only...

    There is not an adapter so you'll just need a pintle hook for your hitch to attach to your trailer's lunette ring. Depending on what size hitch you have there are a pair of options: - 2" Hitch: Curt Pintle Hook # C48004 - 2-1/2" Hitch: Curt Pintle Hook # C48010 Both of these will need to be secured to your hitch with either Pin and Clip # e45TR or Hitch Lock # e98881.

  • Ball Mount For Curt Hitch on 2019 Honda Odyssey For 4x8 U-Haul Trailer
    We can definitely help you get exactly what you need to tow a 4 x 8 U-Haul trailer with your 2019 Honda Odyssey and the Curt Hitch # C64NR. According to U-Haul, their coupler height is 18 inches, and when we installed this Curt hitch on a 2019 Odyssey we found that the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver was 14-1/2 inches. So you'll need a ball mount with approximately 3-1/2 inches of rise, though you can go within an inch or so either way without any issue. There is an...
